I really like to style things.
I have always wanted to design and style a set. Really the only experience I have is in my head and my heart so when Michelle called me and asked if I wanted to partake in she and Alex's vision I told her to sign me up. I was given free creative reigns but was told to come up with more than a few different scenes. The concept was a storefront with a mannequin-esque model showing off spring or summer fashion. Most all of the props I made or they came from my home but I was racing to the store at the last minute to grab fresh flowers, floral napkins, some soda and and muffins.
How about a few more details..
The first scene that I dreamt up was floral pictures made into wallpaper. I think peoples hand area may have gotten a work out from all of the stapling.
For this scene I just made a bunch of triangle thingys...3-D triangles, triangle confetti and of course a big board with some triangle art. Had to be metallic gold involved.
STREAMERS....and colored paper. This took the least work but I love the way it turned out. My only instructions were that we layered the streamers to look kind of like a necklace. Phew it worked. Truth be known I had to leave in the middle of setting this scene up because the school nurse called. When I came back instructions were fulfilled and I got to witness the model throwing streamers into the air..it was great..by the way isn't the model beautiful???
A few behind the scenes shots..literally..there are a lot of behind shots so beware of the hiney.
I hope I get invited back to play. Between hair, make-up, wardrobe changes and set changes we were there from morning to late afternoon/early evening. That doesn't even take into account the hours and hours of photo editing and the time it took for the submission process (go Michelle!) The above would not have been possible without a whole team of awesome people. Alex, who happens to be a wardrobe stylist has skills and you can actually read her perspective about the process right here. Also Michelle the very talenetd photographer did a recap over here.
Thank you for letting me share. It truly was a fun project.
